Fortnite is an upcoming sandbox survival game from Epic Games which is slated to come out on the PC at some point this year. We have gotten some basic information about the game to date, but have yet to really see much of the game in action or what it is all about. Thankfully, the GDC event is going down in San Francisco right now and Epic Games made a presentation on Fortnite and someone was there to capture the whole thing on video and post it online. The magic of the internet, right?
So the video that was leaked out today showcases the game’s crafting techniques and core gameplay. The point of the game is to scavenge around an empty city for materials and to build yourself a shelter from the monsters that come out at night. The crafting system is a bit of an advanced, quick-build system where you point yourself in a direction and lay down a wall, floor, etc. and choose the features like doors, windows and so on.
So go ahead and check out this video and get excited about the upcoming Fortnite.
